In this way, can a belly piercing be too small?
What do I do if my belly button piercing jewellery is too small but I can‘t change it for over a week? … You should have been pierced with a longer then normal bar in case it swells. Then in the appropriate time you go and get a shorter one. If you were pierced with a bar that’s too short don’t go back there!

This happens most often with at-home piercings, where the initial piercing has a high likelihood of being crooked. Another possible cause is a severe infection or intense pulling on the piercing. If the skin inside the piercing is damaged, it can heal incorrectly.
The tissue has contracted due to the absence of your bar. You may have taken the jewelry out too early, as some navel piercings can take a year (or more) to heal completely. Make sure your hands and the jewelry are clean, then spray your saline solution (you should have some) onto both entry and exit holes.
